Several car manufacturers such as Lincoln, Cadillac and Ford sell their sedans to coachbuilders with a package
specifically engineered for funeral vehicles
Using specifically manufactured vehicles helps to make the transition and rebuild easier and more convenient. It also ensures the quality of the vehicles used for modification.
A few of the stock ‘hearse package’ options include heavy duty suspension to accommodate bulky bodywork and support heavy payloads; commercial strength chassis, which is both stronger and lower than average to aid in easy loading and unloading; and a longer wheelbase which also assists in accommodating the heavier rear end of the vehicle. Each of these modifications has a purpose in making a funeral car specifically fitted for the industry.
Contemporary landau style
While it’s not generally a glamorous vehicle, it’s a necessary one. The United States tends to favor a more contemporary landau style funeral cars, generally starting as a Lincoln or Cadillac frame. While Europe favors more traditional Limousine style hearses using European bases such as Jaguars, Mercedes and Volvos.
